Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve

Visit Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve (NNR)

From the wild and windswept mountain plateau to a woodland that’s slowly finding its feet again, Creag Meagaidh feels like the Highlands compressed into one nature reserve. Rare mountain plants like woolly willow and highland saxifrage battle against the elements, whilst black grouse flourish in the combination of woodland and open moorland. With Munro summits, an exposed whaleback ridge and ice carved gullies, Creag Meagaidh is the complete mountain experience.

All of the essential parts of the Highlands are here in one small space. Whether you want serious hillwalking, ice-climbing, low level walks, birdwatching or botany, there’s something for every taste.

For more information on visiting have a look at the NNR leaflet or the NNR website.
